“Throughout the collection, the Tempera Quartet plays beautifully, enthusiastically conveying its sense of discovery. As usual BIS provides bracingly realistic recorded sound, making this disc a choice item for Sibelius fans.”
- Victor Carr Jr, ClassicsToday.com

Full of never-before-recorded gems, this release from the Tempera Quartet brings together fragments and full works by Sibelius in the medium of the string quartet. Written early in the composer's career, works such as the String Quartet in E Flat Major, JS 184 give a unique insight into the development of Sibelius's skills and style, and are all performed with a light touch and a sense of roundness by the Tempera Quartet.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
